New to water cooling with a 250$ budget - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Thread Starter 
Followed the suggestions

ended up to be more than expected
I start to understand now why WC is an addiction

-Is everything alright ?
-am I missing anything ?
-concerning the ''bleeding'' port earlier with the T-line, I actually meant draining

Edit : Can it be more cost effective ?

Why don't you just save the $73 on the RX rad and buy it later when you get your GPU? It's not really necessary right now for just the CPU, the RS240 should be good for now.

List looks good, also...those Yate Loon fans have 'sleeve bearings'...typically you can't mount them in a horizontal position, only vertical. If you want to mount your rad horizontally, then you will need non-sleeve bearing fans (ball bearing fans for examply). Someone please correct me on that if I'm wrong.

If you're cooling the cpu only, then you don't need to spend $73 on another rad. RS240 rad that comes with the XSPC kit will be more than good enough. Furthermore, you don't need to spend money on the fill port either. The XSPC Res/pump combo can easily be pulled half way out of your rig for filling. A funnel will be good enough if you concerned about spilling coolant.

Can somebody help me choose the right fan ?

Hum, true enough. RX240 out. Now what do you suggest for draining ?

Agreed on not needing the 2nd rad if you only plan to cool the cpu. Also, buying that fillport would be a waste. Plus since you're mounting inside your case, I don't see the point of all that UV stuff?

Check out Koolance for quick disconnects specifically made for draining your loop. I think you can get them for around $15.

Scythe Gentle Typhoons are the way to go if you can find them in stock. Scythe S-Flex's are very nice as well. Neither of these are sleeve-bearings. Very good fans. Nice and quiet, esp the GT's. They also have high static pressure...a necessity for radiator fans.

Quick disconnects as mentioned above are far nice and are fairly cheap. Especially when connected directly to a block because then you don't have to buy barbs for that waterblock

UV are not meant to go inside the case for shiny glow ?

If you are talking about this : http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l2/g30/...sconnects.html
then I don't know how I am supposed to use it/ select correct parts. I do understand the meaning behind quick disconnect but it seem rather complicated process/parts.

-Since I won't be buying the extra RX240 I will skip the Fans and wait for GTs when my new PC for BC3 will be build

-Can you link me to the right thing to buy for quick disconnect please ? I seems rather complicated

Yea forget about the T-Line/Fillport. Just get a quick disconnect like suggested. Place the quick disconnect at a low point in the loop for easy draining...or anywhere really if tilting your case isn't a problem. Fillports/T-line were back in the day...quick disconnects are the new thing, haha.

Since the RX240 is out, now you can afford the Gentle Typhoons! No excuse!
